I’d been looking forward to Helen & Dan’s Ston Easton Park wedding for months. The house is set in the beautiful Somerset countryside and has a very grand but authentic vibe. The gardens are vast; a mix of cottage gardens and stately home, great for photos.
The day started at the hairdressers in Wells, once the ladies where looking pristine they headed back to the house. A marquee was set up on the lawn in front of the house, the décor theme was ‘Chinese meets English country garden’ and it looked exquisite thanks to Helen & Dan’s wedding planner Matthew Oliver.
The wedding ceremony commenced followed by canapés, Chinese musicians and zorbing. Guests were gathered (with the help of my new megaphone) for family photos on the terrace. The weather held off and we were even treated to stormy skies! Helen & Dan entered the marquee through the smoke of fire crackers, food was served, some very fine speeches given before the entourage settled into the main house for the evening entertainment.
The night was rounded off with all the guests gathered on the terrace for a spectacular display of fireworks. Thank you to Helen & Dan for having me capture their amazing day and thank you to Carmela who worked alongside me on this one.
